Afrikan Insurrektion Muzik (A.I.M.)

In a previous post, I paid my respects to one of my favorite lyricists, Nas. Growing up in an era where commercialized Hip-Hop dominated the airwaves, conscious artists like him (along with a handful of others) really stood out to me. Their messages were necessary and, at times, they didn’t receive the same level of recognition or respect that they deserved. Which isn’t the least bit surprising considering the fact that telling the truth has never been celebrated but shunned.

So, for the past few years, I’ve been on a quest to find music for the soul. And I believe I’ve found it with Afrikan Insurrektion Muzik.

Afrikan Insurrektion Musik is a term that was created by New York Hip Hop group United Front. They were established in 2008 with the intent to spread empowerment throughout the Black community. The A.I.M. artists consist of United Front, Brotha’s Keepa, Kween Jasira, and Maafa Southpaw. And, so far, their sound and message have resonated with the ones (myself included) who are devoted to healing and building.

You can stay up-to-date with these artists by connecting with them on Facebook as well as YouTube. And if you know of any other inspirational musicians, feel free to comment below.

Until Next Time…

    Like back when we used to listen to Public Enemy & N.W.A. About time we got back to these values in hip hop.

    1. Facts, cuzzo. Now all we need is Neo-soul music to resurface.
